According to a Mayo Clinic study, any exercise that gets the heart pumping may reduce the risk of dementia and slow the condition’s progression once it starts. The findings come after researchers examined the role of aerobic exercise in preserving cognitive abilities and concluded that it should not be overlooked as an important therapy against dementia. Examples include walking, gym workouts and activities at home.
